The University of California Irvine is supporting the college republicans in allowing Milo Yiannopoulos, who goes by the name of "The Conservative Faggot" to come back to campus. His event on Sunday October 30th will be held in Crystal Cove Auditorium in which attendees are encouraged to "Wear your most culturally appropriating, offensive, triggering Halloween costume to the event." and to "bring as much privilege as you can." As you can see, this event will be filled with hate and rooted in exploitation of non-white bodies. We are calling for Thomas A. Parham, Ph.D to cancel the event! Milo's event at this campus in the past have perpetuated violence against people of color and participate in/promote hate speech. An instance happened in which a student was physically assaulted by a white male Trump supporter, before attending the event. While UCIPD were there "protecting" the Milo event attendees, they did nothing to ensure safety for the woman of color who was assaulted. The Irvine college republicans have been suspended before for bringing Milo to our campus, yet the suspension was lifted and the same violence is being perpetuated again. Why?! This time around, as you can see, it will be a Halloween event in which they are openly supporting hate, dehumanization of POC, cultural appropriation, and bigotry. SIGN THE PETITION AND STOP MILO FROM COMING, NOW! IF UCI CARED ABOUT THEIR STUDENTS, THIS WOULDNT EVEN BE HAPPENING
